Color - Bright pale gold
Bouquet - Cinnamon, nutmeg, lychee and rose petals.
Taste - Rich, intense, luscious and well balanced with a dry, spicy finish.
James Suckling 92 points - The 2013 vintage was very good for gewurz in Alsace. This wine shows a stone, spice and dried peach character. Hints of licorice too. Full-bodied, dry and spicy. Classic style. Try this to understand what dry gewurz is. Drink now.
Wine Enthusiast 91 points - Powdery, creamy notes of rose, orange and mandarin oil unite in a concentrated, punchy palate that focuses on taste rather than aroma. This is rounded and rich with an immensely concentrated phenolic vein that lends structure and poise. The finish is lasting but demure.
On the dry side and focused, exhibiting nectarine, spice and grapefruit peel flavors on a medium-bodied profile.
|Wine maker notes
|The juice ferments in temperature-controlled stainless steel and concrete vats; no malolactic fermentation to maintain as much natural acidity as possible. Two years of cellar aging.
|Delicious with spicy foods, including Asian and fusion cuisines. Also an ideal wine to pair with strong cheeses.
